Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Second Sunday of Advent
Comfort to My People
He filled my soul with the strength of His grace. I cannot express the Lord’s words any more. I have written these words to record how the Lord’s goodness comforts me in my difficult hours. (Elizabeth) (October 15, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Comfort, give comfort to my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her service is at an end, her guilt is expiated; indeed, she has received from the hand of the LORD double for all her sins. (Isaiah 40)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, sometimes when we think about things of the past, regrets, sins, where we went off the rails it can fill us with such despair. But Lord You did not come to condemn us (John 3) but to redeem us and heal us of our deep wounds. You whisper to us comfort, peace, whatever it is brought to You in true sorrow and contrition- it is over! You remember our sins no more (Isaiah 43)! So this Advent let us take a deep breath and a long look at ourselves and bring all that is tying us in knots to the Throne of Grace (Hebrews 4) in the confessional if we need to, and we all need to. And after we do that, as they say in Brooklyn fugedaboutit! Because You already have!
